October Is Ripe For Homebuyers According To Analysis From Attom On Historical Home Sales


IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ATTOM, curator of the nation’s premier property database, today released its annual analysis of the best time of the year to buy a home, which shows that the month of October, as well as the winter months, offer homebuyers the best deals – fetching lower premiums than other months of the year.

According to the analysis, buyers who close in October will get the best deal compared to the spring buying season. While the premium is still above market value, homebuyers are only dealing with a 2.9% premium, as opposed to the month of May, when homebuyers are experiencing an 11.5% premium. This analysis of more than 33 million single family home and condo sales over the past eight years is evidence of the continuation of a hot sellers’ market (see full methodology below).

Methodology

For this analysis ATTOM looked at any calendar day in the last eight years (2013 to 2020) with at least 10,000 single family home and condo sales. There were 362 days (including leap year data) that matched this measure, with the four exceptions being Jan. 1, July 4, Nov. 11 and Dec. 25. To calculate the premium or discount paid on a given day, ATTOM compared the median sales price for homes with a purchase closing on that day with the median automated valuation model (AVM) for those same homes at the time of sale.
